Love Actually might be a Christmas film but that doesn't stop us watching it all year round and now it's been confirmed the cast are reuniting for Red Nose Day.

The beloved actors Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Lucia Moniz, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke, and Rowan Atkinson will get together for the Comic Relief short film Red Nose Day Actually.

In the short movie we'll get the chance to see what all the character are up to now - in 2017. Writer and Director of the original Love Actually movie Richard Curtis explained why he wanted to do a short sequel of the film: "It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based one of my films, since Red Nose Day is now in both the UK and America.

"I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to. Who has aged best? - I guess that’s the big question… or is it so obviously Liam?"

He continued: "We’ve been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part - and it’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later.

"We hope to make something that’ll be fun - very much in the spirit of the original film and of Red Nose Day - and which we hope will help bring lots of viewers and cash to the Red Nose Day shows."

We didn't think this day would ever come.

Are Harry and Karen are still married? Are Jamie and Aurelia together? Did Colin head back to America? SO MANY QUESTIONS?
